Xavi bids goodbye to Camp Nou lifting the Cup

The blaugrana captain played 40 minutes of the game against Athletic and lifted the trophy at full time to complete an historic double ahead of next Saturday's Champions League final in Berlin

Xavi Hernández played his last game at Camp Nou in an FC Barcelona shirt on Saturday in the Spanish Cup final against Athletic Bilbao. The legendary midfielder came in the second half to replace Andrés Iniesta and therefore played an important part in helping the Club to their second trophy of the season. During his 40 minutes on the field. Xavi completed 27 passes and almost marked his final game at the stadium with a trademark free-kick that came back off the post in injury time. That surely would have been a fitting way to end Xavi’s 17 years at Camp Nou.

The Barça captain still has the chance to end his Barça career in spectacular fashion. His farewell in the league in the final game of the season at Camp Nou against Deportivo was emotional enough but with one match of the campaign still to come, he has the chance to end on another winning note. The cherry on the cake awaits in Berlin where next Saturday the blaugrana captain will have the chance to lift the Champions League trophy to round of unforgettable season for an unforgettable player.
